Andromeda should still work and Substratum will open. Happened to me.

It's because your SELinux is Enforcing. Either change it to Permissive or use the Magisk script, on this forum you can just extract it and install the file manually, if you prefer.

I followed the instructions written on the introducing post. But the emulator didn't ask me for root access. I have no entry in Magisks SU neither. So I skipped this part and just typed the command with the attached result. After that I started Substratum and tried to apply Sai's Oreo Theme to test if it's working. It's not. I click on compile and activate, the script is running and finishing without any errors. But no changes were made after the reboot.
What am I doing wrong?

    What is Andromeda?

    Andromeda is an app that enables you to use the Substratum theme engine on Android 8 Oreo without root.

    What does this script do?

    Andromeda requires the user to run a shell/adb script with the phone connected to the PC to enable its functionality. This isn't very convenient, expecially when you don't have your computer with you.

    If you have root access you can run this shell script directly from your phone to enable Andromeda functionality.

    How to

    Important: you NEED root access. If you don't, I suggest to install Magisk


    • Download andromeda_local.sh from the GitHub repository and put it on your phone in an easy to reach location. Some good locations could be /sdcard/ or /sdcard/Documents.
    • Install Terminal Emuator for Android either from the Play Store or from FDroid
    • Run Terminal Emulator and run su. A pop-up will come up asking you to grant root permissions. Grant them.
    • Run sh followed by the full path the andromeda_local.sh script. Example: if I have it in /sdcard/Documents/ I will write sh /sdcard/Documents/andromeda_local.sh.
    • (Optional) You may want to close the android terminal using the "X" icon on the top right section of the Toolbar.
    • Done, happy theming!

    If you have root access you don't need Andromeda.

    Is it possible to do this while on TWRP, so that after doing it there, the command will execute on boot?

    Or maybe how do I make this to a boot script?

    Sent from my OnePlus 3T using XDA-Developers Legacy app

    I cannot seem to find a way to make it run on boot, but, inspired by this script, and seeing how it seems to be abandoned, I DID take a look at the Linux Andromeda start script, and I tweaked it into a much more reliable script, as well as made a Magisk Module, so you don't have to locate the script when you want to run it, simply type a command. Keep an eye out. I don't want to hijack this thread, so I'm looking into making my own in a few

    is there an app that does this? are you planning to turn your script into an app? (would you mind if i made one, giving you credit, of course.)
